22/07/14: Tear gas at Iftar in Burin and Huwwara

As the village of Burin prepared to break their days fast, known as Iftar, the Israeli Army invaded, indiscriminately firing tear gas, stun grenades and rubber coated steel bullets. The brave youth of the village defended the village against the attack, which went on for four hours.

This came at the same time as a large demonstration marched on Huwwara checkpoint, just south of Nablus and east of Burin. The Army attacked the demonstrators who were calling for an end to the massacre against Gaza and their determination to continue their solidarity with their brothers and sisters in the besieged eastern Palestine.

SFP has been and continues to join the marches on Huwwara and calls on all Palestinians to face the Occupation across Palestine and rise up in support of Gazans. For further information and SFP’s latest action at Huwwara please click here.
